I was so delighted to see these available after having lost two to my arm hitting a door jam as I passed through. There is a learning curve because of the adhesive covers that must be peeled off upon application. I found it was impossible to peel the protective sheets off upon application because they hold tightly and there is no lip to easily peel back. Rather, I conquer this removal prior to application that I carefully center as best I can, smoothing out the surrounding circle of adhesive tape. For me, it only leaves a couple of wrinkles and for those of you who have another set of hands and birds eye view the application should be even smoother and neater. I’ve used this application twice now with no loss of the monitor in three weeks. I will say the second application is starting to get a frilly lift, probably from bathing, but of no concern because it holds tightly. It’s also relatively easy to remove by pulling a little harder without taking the monitor with it. That detaches normally, leaving a little adhesive residue because of the strength and security of the protective tape. This is perfect to use the extra alcohol patch to clean the area. I also love the tape comes in both nude and transparent. I ordered both but it’s nice to have a choice depending on my preference. What I am happy about is not to have to display that little white disc on my arm and the confidence knowing that I can pass through tight spaces without fear of knocking it off for which you have my thanks.
I use the patches for theFreestyle Libre2. These are excellent. They hide the obvious glaring white of the monitor with a skin colored patch. They also adhere well. I do have a question: the Libre3 is coming out. Will you have patches ready for its smaller size?

I love them!!! They stay the whole two weeks and no worries of pulling out the sensor!
